The liquid gold of Brazil….Cachaça.
If you`re not familiar with cachaça i wrote a post about cachaça and rhum agricole long ago and tried to explain the difference between them since they both are made from sugarcane juice and yet so different.

Last week i wrote about the Cedilla – and excellent acai liqueur from the house of Leblon and now it´s time to present their new aged cachaça as well - Maison Leblon Reserva Especial - a special limited aged cachaça that were recently introduced in Brazil.

Here comes Brazil!
I just got my hands on Leblon`s new açai liqueur…
Açai is a new macerated fruit liqueur made by Maison Leblon and is made from Zambazon açai berries from the Amazon region in Brazil. Straight from the rainforest, exotic and purple – yeah…this really speaks to me.

When i open the bottle the nose that reaches me is sweet with a hint of [...]

From Bahia it hails – Abelha organic cachaca. I can easily say that this is the best cachaca i`ve had so far, its insanely good – so flavourful and tasty! yet so smooth. I was actually surprised it was so good even though i expected it to be good. Up in Bahia is a [...]
